Here is something close to what I use to get version information. not sure what you would have to do in order to get the ports SQL is listening on. The switch statement was put together really quickly just now, so you may want to add another check on minor version if major version is 10 do differentiate between SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2.

#Add SQL PS Snapins
$snapinTest = get-pssnapin | where-object {$_.name -like "*sql*"}
if ($snapinTest.length -eq $null)
{
get-pssnapin -registered | add-pssnapin
}
#Load SMO assembly
$null = [reflection.assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo")

$sqlInstances = get-content "c:\scripts\commonvalues\sql.txt" #List of SQL instances, one per line. Add \DEFAULT if it is the default instance
$errorActionPreference = "Stop"
$pushFail = $false

foreach ($sql in $sqlInstances)
{
if (($sql.substring(($sql.indexof("\") + 1), $sql.length - $sql.indexof("\") - 1)) -eq "default")
{
$sql2 = $sql.substring(0, $sql.length - ($sql.length - $sql.indexof("\")))
}
else
{
$sql2 = $sql
}
$sqlVersion = new-object "Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server" $sql2
$ver = $sqlVersion.version.major
switch ($ver)
{
9 {write-host "$sql2 is SQL 2005"}
10 {write-host "$sql2 is SQL 2008/2008 R2"}
11 {write-host "$sql2 is SQL 2012"}
default {write-host "$sql2 is pre-SQL 2005"}
}
}

To get the SQL Server info,

[reflection.assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo") > $null 
$server = new-object ('Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server') 'SQLName'

#You can select all the properties
$server


#Just version and edition and language
$server | select version, edition,language

Or we can create a reusable function :

Function Get-SqlServerInfo {

[CmdletBinding()]


param(
[Parameter(Position=0, Mandatory=$true, ValueFromPipeline = $true,ValuefromPipelinebyPropertyName=$true)] [string[]]$SQLServer
)
begin {
[reflection.assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo") > $null
}
process {
foreach ($SQL in $SQLServer) {
$server = new-object ('Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server') $SQL
write-output $server
}
}
}

and use
Server1 | Get-SQLServerInfo 
"server'","server2" | Get-SQLServerInfo
Get-SQLServerInfo Server1

having a txt file with the names of the servers
get-content c:\sqlnames.txt | Get-SQLServerInfo 

or passing as array. The parameter sqlserver in the functions is a string[], then I can use
Get-SQLServerInfo -sqlserver (Get-content c:\sqlnames.txt)

To select the properties just pipe to select
Get-SQLServerInfo -sqlserver (Get-content c:\sqlnames.txt) | select version, edition,language

TO THE PORT :



[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SqlServer.SqlWmiManagement") | out-null
$WMI = New-Object ('Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Wmi.ManagedComputer') 'SQLName'
$WMI.ClientProtocols | select displayname -ExpandProperty ProtocolProperties

PS - only support in SQL Server 2005 or higher and must have a SQL instance installed locally


OR in the WMI Directly
Get-WmiObject -query "select * from ClientNetworkProtocolProperty"  -Namespace root\Microsoft\SqlServer\ComputerManagement11 -ComputerName YourComputer



Or reading the Registry :

SQL Server 2000

Default instance

hklm:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSSQLServer\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\TCP

Named instance

hklm:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server(InstanceName)\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\TCP

SQL Server 2005
hklm:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.X\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\TCP\IPAll
X is the number assigned to the instance. Default Instance is MSSQLSERVER

SQL Server 2008/R2 2012

Default instance

hklm:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQLX.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\TCP\IPAll

Named instance
hklm:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQLX.(InstanceName)\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\TCP\IPAll

Change X to the version 10 or 11

Choose you key and run remotely :

$Registry = "hklm:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQLServer\SuperSocketNetLib\TCP\IPAll"
invoke-command {param($Registry); Get-Itemproperty -path $Registry } -ComputerName YourComputer -ArgumentList $Registry



$hell your Experience !!!
